I hope that Kerosene dude comes here to help me understand and find the wick I need for this one because I cant find anything on this unit
After refinishing my Perfection Heater "dump find" last month I won this auction on ebay for a mear $20 bucks! This is a New Process Stove Co. Standard No 40 B Kerosene Heater and I need to find a Wick that will work with it!
The great thing about this Heater is the Rings are indeed real Nickel plate and the base is real cast iron and the window is real Mica! This makes it particularly fun because it will be more akin to an antique coal stove for me
The problem is that the reservoir, gear linkage, fill cap & fuel gauge are not solid Brass (like the perfection) and I had to nearly beat the screw fill cap off to unfreeze it (not looking forward to discovering how frozen/fused together the Wick is) and clearly the gearing/flame adjustment is gone on this one as well (must be common because the perfection was also stripped).
With the fill cap off I've filled in with Gasoline and will let that soak for a couple days before trying anything.
Pics below... if anyone can tell me what Wick to get for this unit, it would be wonderful! Thanks guys
